Kevin Rudd Supports Gay Marriage: Blog Post

In new just in, former Australian prime minister Kevin Rudd has declared his support of gay marriage on his blog page.

Today, Kevin Rudd wrote a blog post on the matter, which started like this:

"I have come to the conclusion that church and state can have different positions and practices on the question of same sex marriage. I believe the secular Australian state should be able to recognise same sex marriage. I also believe that this change should legally exempt religious institutions from any requirement to change their historic position and practice that marriage is exclusively between a man and a woman. For me, this change in position has come about as a result of a lot of reflection, over a long period of time, including conversations with good people grappling with deep questions of life, sexuality and faith."

You can read the rest here.

This comes hot on the heels of the column his daughter Jess Rudd has written for her regular Cleo opinion piece, on gay marriage. Read more on that here, and in the June 2012 edition of Cleo.
